Larry and I spent time with Carol and chatted with her when we visited the wonderful Trout family! Carol was always happy and had a positive outlook no matter her limitations! I’ll always remember how much she loved her kitty, and also watching Perry Mason!! I am blessed to have spent time with Carol - to get to know her. All my love to you Carol! I’m sure, that you are happy, dancing, and enjoying Perry Mason in heaven! My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends for your loss. May the precious memories of Carol bring y’all comfort.
